Recipe For Becoming a Pubbed Indie Author

by on Mar.01, 2016, under Writing Craft

After a delightful evening at the casino, a few of us writer types from the Ashland (Oregon) Writers’ Group put together a list of what it takes to get traction in the indie book market. Your mileage may be zero. But hey, go for it!

  1. Be a celebrity
  2. Don’t use too big a words
  3. Be a social media animal
  4. Make it about a boy and a girl, aged 13 – 24
  5. Make it an epic quest for Power and Things
  6. Throw in a zot of moral superiority
  7. Make it a trilogy, at least.
  8. Accept that grammar and punctuation are stylistic bits
  9. Spellcheckers aren’t worth the money

The future is a catastrophe to the past, so us outsiders with the paper 3D glasses need to man- or girl-up. The reality is virtual, from here on out.
